2016 Outlook
Depth Chart
After a slow start to his sophomore campaign Brandin Cooks settled into his role as the Saints’ top receiving threat. From Week 7 on Cooks averaged 12.8 fantasy points per game, easily placing him amongst the top fantasy receivers. He stands out when compared to the other receivers being taken around his current ADP of 3.08 considering his situation. Working in a pass-heavy offense with an efficient quarterback at the helm; there is little reason to doubt Cooks’ ability to repeat his success. The quality of the depth chart under Cooks has improved yet he still stands a fair chance at seeing his targets inch upwards as he gains more confidence in his third year. Value him as a WR2 who will moonlight as your team’s top receiver a handful of times throughout the season.

News From The Past 90 Days
Willie Snead more than holding his own
Former UDFA clearly in QB's "circle of trust"
By: Doug Orth | Mon Aug 8, 5:10 pm

New Orleans
If there were any concerns about Willie Snead being trumped by some of the newcomers at receiver, those concerns have evaporated. Snead has looked even better than last season, and it’s clear he’s right in the middle of Brees’ circle of trust. When things were going poorly Saturday with Brandin Cooks sidelined, Snead was the receiver Brees locked in on to carry the offense. Snead should remain an important member of the offense. If he doesn’t get enough targets to flirt with 1,000 yards again, it won’t be because of regression. It will be because the offense has more weapons. (New Orleans Advocate)

FFToday's Take: The other weapons being most notably second-round rookie Michael Thomas and free-agent signing Coby Fleener. As the writer suggests, more weapons - and not regression - will likely be the reason Snead falls short of his 69-984-3 from a season ago. While Snead is unlikely to finish as the WR32 in PPR again this season, he should still be a more-than-serviceable low-end WR3 or high-floor WR4.
